Phyllis and Kenny first met while both students at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver. Their story starts like many others … depends on who you ask! Phyllis recalls their first encounter to have been sparked over her savvy financial move to sell her parking pass to Kenny who had tired of taking the bus to school. He however, remembers meeting Phyllis two years prior at a student club meeting, when he was new to town.
While the time pressures of student life kept them apart, they credit their fairy tale romance to the wisdom of the SFU administration who saw fit to put both the philosophy and business faculties in the same building.“Eventually, she relearned my name, and we started to spend time together alone when we both had night classes” says Kenny. Late night dinners and witty conversations soon blossomed into love.
